  • The traumatic subject matter of a child custody fight is handled with restraint and intelligence in The Good Mother.

  • Performances are good, though Keaton's snorting laughs and distracted manner are a bit of an obstacle course.

    Top Critic
  • For all its potential to challenge and disturb, The Good Mother is finally no more wrenching than a placid Maine landscape on a summer day.

    August 30, 2004 | Rating: 2/5
  • The Good Mother is one of the most confused and conflicted serious movies in a long time -- a film that feels great passion about its subject matter but has no idea what it wants to say or how to say it.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • One more nail in the coffin of the 60s.

  • Even shackled to banalities, Keaton has the power to amaze.
